Today I interview Claire Coder, good friend and fellow dropout from Ohio State. She has started multiple businesses, most recently Aunt Flow, a buy-one, give-one subscription model for tampons. At 19 years old, she raised over $40,000 with crowdfunding and business competitions, and her company will begin sales in January.

We dig into some interesting and raw topics about being a 19 year-old entrepreneur, struggling through the learning process, nude modeling for money, emotional breakdowns, and much more.

It was a really entertaining conversation–I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

About halfway through a siren goes off in the background. But hey, it gives the conversation some character, so try to enjoy it.


Topics we discuss:

Her company, Aunt Flow

Entrepreneurial beginnings at 16

School vs. the real world

The need for attention and being honest about it

Alternative education: Praxis

Learning through trial and error and dealing with pushback in entrepreneurship

Menstrual cycles
